Minneapolis Sculpture Garden Reviews
We did come here to see the big spoon. Although, there is more here to see. Some really cool art work in what seems to be located in the historic district. Really good quiet spot. more »
Lovely garden - clean with interesting sculptures. Easy walk and bridge to Loring park and Walker museum. Great for children. more »
I absolutely love outdoor art and sculpture parks are my go to when I visit a new town. The amazing layout of the different pieces around the grounds is wonderful. It makes the walk around the park very enjoyable. Parking is very easy to find and had combination of underground and side street parking. Also, the locations of the Nice Ride bike stations make this spot a great launch point for a fun outdoor city trek on bike.
Expansive urban sculpture garden carefully placing art amongst calming, well thought out and flowing open space. Free and accessible from downtown whether walking or driving in, regardless of season. Special place day or night with the perfect downtown skyline as the backdrop. Visit frequently at different times to get the full experience and even grab a bite across the street. Sculptures featuring some of the most renowned artists and of course including the spoon bridge and cherry.
